Pick The Right Font Size For Your Customised Rubber Stamps In 5 Steps

Every aspect of your design matters when it comes to creating customised rubber stamps, especially the font and font size of your text. It’s important that you get the sizing just right so that it doesn’t cut into other areas of your design. Here’s how to identify the right size and font for your customised rubber stamps in 5 steps:

Customized Rubber Stamp Design

  1. Templates

Regardless of whether you are taking it upon yourself to design a customised rubber stamp or enlisting the help of designers to do so, there are resources online that could prove to be a great help to you. Professional rubber designers have made rubber stamp templates available for download so you can use the ones that are closest to your final rubber stamp product. Keep the directions and bleed area of your template in mind while designing your customised rubber stamps.

  1. Font Size

Different font styles have different font spacings. One crucial thing to note is that font sizes below 6.5 pt will not provide consistent ink delivery. The smaller your text, the harder it is for clear crisp impressions since ink can bubble up to form blobs when text fonts are too small and close knit. So try your best to either keep your font size 6.5 pts and above or to keep your font style simple if you’re using a smaller sized font.

  1. Font measurements

When selecting a font, you also have to take into account the structure and total measurements of your font measurements. To gauge properly, pay attention to the ascent, descent, and space in between your font and compare it against the actual size of your customised rubber stamps. Make sure to size the text accurately such that it avoids the bleed area so that you can tell how the output would actually look like when the rubber stamp is finally produced.

  1. Digital vs Actual (Pica vs Points)

Another important factor to note is that fonts are measured with points/picas/pixels/ems and more. 1 pica is equivalent to 12 pts, ems are sizing details used for online web and actual print. Pixels are also what is seen on the screen. Taking into account actual data measurements, make sure to size accordingly and do a few test prints to see how it translates onto paper.

  1. Digital vs Actual (Points vs Pixels)

It is important to note that pixels are the smallest form of font measurement and can vary between pc screen/browser settings. Font sizes in pixels aren’t normally used unless it is for web design and specific sizing is needed. So when you are designing digital rubber stamps, this would be good to note.
